Another quiet surf day for Sydney. As the pictures show, waves are in the ankle to knee high range. That’s too small for the point, and at least from the RealSurf crowsnest, I couldn’t see anybody in the water along the beach.
As of 0830 wind was light from the SW under a mostly cloudy sky. The MHL buoy was seeing swell out of the SSE, 1.8 metres at 9 seconds. Tide is currently coming into a high at 1000. Beachwatch says water’s 18C and all beaches are rated ‘pollution unlikely’.
The swell models are still uniformly ho-hum about our surf prospects for the next week. Wavewatch shows some hope of a south pulse with north wind at the weekend, but apart from that, it seems the big high sitting over us will keep deflecting wave generating systems away from our swell window.
Have yourself a top old Tuesday everyone!
A high pressure system over southeast Australia will gradually move to the northern Tasman Sea today, where it is expected to remain for several days. This pattern will see winds gradually shift northerly along the New South Wales coast, before a cold front brings a southerly change to the southern parts on Friday.
